Looks like the 23' will be going in the water in about 3 weeks... No changes over the winter, except a new starter has to go on (broke a bendix spring)...
Plan for the year is to give her a really good detailing before summer (clay bar and wax), and enjoy it this year.. Im thinking about starting another marine restoration project this summer (not chris-craft related)
Main thing I need to worry about is I need to modify the metering rod on the left side of the motor.. If someone recalls, I was having issues with detonation on cylinder 2. I talked to a friend of mine (who is really experienced in racing chevy motors) saying that SBC's are really prone to detonation particularly on the #2 cylinder. he said the easiest fix is to shave a little off the metering rod on that side so that side gets a little bit more fuel...
Im wondering if there are different metering rods we can get, or if theres any identification for them..
Thanks in advance for any information...

The metering rods for the Carter AFB afre the same as the Edelbrock carbs. You can buy one of their tuning kits with rods, springs, jets, etc. You can find directions on tuning on their website.
The metering rods are designated by the thick middle and thin end diameters.
